Preservation Ohio, Ohio’s oldest statewide preservation organization, announces the 2014 Ohio’s Most Endangered Historic Sites.

Gleaned from properties submitted statewide, these properties represent 11 of the most notable and fragile properties. Some have been destined for demolition and others are falling to demolition because of lack of maintenance and care. Either way, their loss will deeply affect their community and reduce our list of historic properties statewide. The list below tells the story of everything from an airport terminal to a farmstead -- mansions and those of a humble origin.

Preservation Ohio hopes that the attention brought to these properties through this listing will alert others to their plight and perhaps those of other properties statewide.

Arrow Spotlight: All Eyes Are On Tennis Sensation PDF Print E-mail

This week’s Tecumseh Spotlight Athlete features tennis superstar Taylor Culbertson, as the senior wraps up her career with the Arrows.

Without a doubt, Taylor Culbertson knows about success. The Tecumseh tennis senior is preparing for her last year on the Arrows’ court, and there is not much that this decorated tennis sensation hasn’t accomplished.

She has earned all-conference throughout her entire career, including the league’s Player of the Year as a junior. According to the league website, Culbertson is 60-5 after her first three years with the Arrows, while she has also had success throughout the post-season tournament, This coming year, she will be aiming for one last dream she has yet to accomplish…the state tournament.

“I would love to make it to state this year,” she said. “We have a really tough district and it will be a tough challenge.”

To help prepare for what she hopes will be a magical season, Culbertson has been training very intensely this summer, and played in some of the top tournaments in the region.

“I have traveled a lot this summer, but have stayed in the Ohio Valley area with the qualifiers,” Culbertson said. The senior had to get through the area and district qualifier to advance to the Midwest Closed tournament in Indianapolis.

“They take three people from the area qualifier to advance to the districts, then they take like 16 players to qualify for the Closed,” Culbertson said, who stated she finally advanced to the Closed by qualifying this summer. “I have made it by my ranking in the past, but this year I actually qualified for it this time.”

Culbertson is ranked as the number 62 player in the Midwest in the 18U age division.

She also participated at the Nationals in Memphis, Tennessee in July, where was initially an alternate based on her ranking.

“I don’t go to a lot of national tournaments, so I don’t have a lot of national points,” she said. “I got notified a week before that I was in. It was the clay court Nationals, and I don’t really play on clay. It was a really good experience for me.”

Culbertson takes her game very seriously, and looks forward to what the future brings to her at the next level.

“I want to play in college definitely,” she said, talking about her game going to the next level. “I just need more practice, and playing more. I need to work on the things to make me better.”

Kaffenbargers Celebrate 60th Calf Scramble With Victory PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maggie Yowler   
Thursday, 31 July 2014 19:48

When Grant Kaffenbarger entered the Calf Scramble arena on the final day of the 2014 Clark County Fair, he was walking in the footsteps of his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him. When he exited the ring, victorious, as he had captured a scrambling calf, Grant quite literally brought the Kaffenbarger tradition of catching calves full-circle.

Lloyd Kaffenbarger, Grant’s great-grandfather, started the Clark County Fair’s annual Calf Scramble 60 years ago with his friend Paul Deer. Greg Kaffenbarger, Lloyd’s grandson, said Deer got the idea of a calf scramble after seeing it done at a fair in Texas. “He told Grandpa that we had to get something like that going on in Clark County,” Greg said.

The two men soon put together the annual fair tradition that so many Clark County residents look forward to each year. “It’s a big deal, I think…it’s like the
